Mule Alley Welcomes Flea Style in Fall 2021

FORT WORTH, TEXAS  (July 26, 2021) – The historic Fort Worth Stockyards is pleased to announce retail emporium Flea Style will be expanding with a store opening in Mule Alley in fall 2021. Known for supporting unique style and small businesses, the Mule Alley location of Flea Style will offer a similar experience for shoppers, including retail items such as local goods, artisan clothing, jewelry, home decor, custom hats, and western-influenced pieces for the local customer.

 Originally an outdoor pop-up flea market called The Dallas Flea founded by Brittany Cobb in 2009, Flea Style will open its third retail store in Mule Alley featuring custom collaborations between makers, rare finds that Cobb sources around the globe, including clothing, jewelry, home decor, hats, and unique western wear. 

“We’re so excited to expand to Cowtown,” says Brittany Cobb, CEO and founder, who sprinkles her personal flea market finds throughout the stores monthly. “With the success of our Wide Brim concept store in Hotel Drover and our Stetson hat collection, we know Mule Alley is the perfect location to bring our retail and restaurant brands and cannot wait to swing open our doors.”

The 3,400-square-foot space will also house their biggest hat bar to date, slinging their private label Stetson collection as well as colorful vegan options and a huge assortment of unique accents for customers to make bespoke hats. A mini version of their full-fledged restaurant Heirloom Haul will also sit inside offering specialty sips such as their best-selling frosé and signature lattes for guests to enjoy in-store or while walking around the Mule Alley district. 

“Flea Style completes our tenant mix of western wear brands that are available at Mule Alley and cements our status as the only place that visitors can find an unparalleled, curated retail experience,” says Fort Worth Heritage Development Co. Team Leader Design and Development Kayla Wilkie. “Flea Style customers travel far and wide to experience Cobb’s unique mix, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to offer that to Fort Worth locals and Stockyards tourists alike.”

Flea Style will join Mule Alley’s open tenants, including Marriott Autograph Collection resort Hotel Drover, Provender Hall, Sidesaddle Saloon, Shake Shack, Lucchese Bootmaker, American Paint Horse Association’s flagship experience, Biscuit Bar, Cowtown Winery, Wrangler, King Ranch Saddle Shop, Proper Supply Co., and Simpli.fi national headquarters. Mule Alley will soon welcome additional retail and restaurants, including Second Rodeo Brewing Co., Avoca Coffee, two new restaurant concepts from Chef Tim Love, and MELT Ice Creams. 

Flea Style is located at 128 E Exchange Ave and will be open Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, please visit fleastyle.com and follow on Instagram @fleastyle.

PERFORMING ARTS FORT WORTH ANNOUNCES NORTH TEXAS REGIONAL WINNER IN DEAR EVAN HANSEN “YOU WILL BE FOUND” ESSAY CHALLENGE

Joshua Rubel of Greenhill School to Receive $2,500 Prize Package

FORT WORTH, Texas (July 23, 2021) – In partnership with Gotham Writers Workshop and the Broadway Education Alliance, DEAR EVAN HANSEN invited 11th-grade and 12th-grade students across the country to write a college-application style essay that describes how they channeled the theme of “You Will Be Found” to ensure those around them were a little less alone over the last year, or, alternatively, a moment where they found comfort in connection.

Additionally, Performing Arts Fort Worth, the non-profit owner and operator of Bass Performance Hall, also partnered with this contest to award a North Texas Regional Winner. Performing Arts Fort Worth is proud to announce Joshua Rubel of Greenhill School in Addison as the North Texas Regional Winner.

Nearly 4,000 high school students across America wrote about impactful ways they stayed connected with others over the last year. Out of the 172 entries from the North Texas region that were a part of the national contest, four entries were narrowed down to finalists based on an average score. Performing Arts Fort Worth then enlisted an outside panel of nine judges that read and scored the top four regional essays, naming Rubel’s the winner. Rubel, from Dallas, will be entering the 12th grade at Greenhill School this fall.

“Winning this award reminded me of the benefit of sharing personal experiences with others as they can potentially change someone else’s outlook on a situation,” Rubel said. “The recognition also reminded me of the impact that DEAR EVAN HANSEN has had on American culture and my own personal life. It’s an honor to receive recognition for my efforts.”

As the North Texas Regional Winner, Rubel will be recognized in the following ways:

  • A $2,500 cash prize that can be used towards college admission, school expenses, etc.
  • Tickets to see DEAR EVAN HANSEN in Fort Worth during the premiere Jan. 4-9, 2022, engagement at Bass Hall
  • An official DEAR EVAN HANSEN merch pack
  • Inclusion of Rubel’s winning essay in the digital/print playbill for the premiere Fort Worth engagement of DEAR EVAN HANSEN

“The best way to find answers is by looking around at what others have done to find inspiration,” Rubel added. “Don’t be afraid to take a step forward and go ask a friend, classmate, or teacher for help as they may have endured a similar experience. There will be someone who will be ‘waving back.'”

The other North Texas regional finalists included: Megan Gandara, Fort Worth, TCC South Campus – FWISD Early Collegiate High School; John “JP” Berry, Dallas, Highland Park High School; and Ian Kirk, Frisco, iUniversity Prep. All regional finalists will receive tickets to see DEAR EVAN HANSEN in Fort Worth.

The Fort Worth premiere engagement of DEAR EVAN HANSEN will play Bass Hall Jan. 4-9, 2022, as part of the 2021-2022 Broadway at the Bass season. Season tickets are currently on sale at www.basshall.com.
